You can read my review of Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls HERE (B+), while my review of Etrian Mystery Dungeon should be going live soon. For those after a little more information on both titles, check out their official blurbs below:
Etrian Mystery Dungeon – Official Blurb
There’s no hand-holding in Etrian Mystery Dungeon. The action/turn based combat means that battling monsters is not just about using the right skills, but becomes an elegant Pas de Quatre of strategic positioning. Players form their parties with familiar Etrian Odyssey classes, such as Landsknecht and Runemaster, customize individuals using Etrian-style skill trees, and then take up to four members into the dungeons. Always randomized with various levels and paths, the dungeons require plenty of exploration, not to mention the incredible loot rewards — just be wary of what waits among the deepest depths…
Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls

Their leader, Monaca, declares that the city will be the site of a Children’s Paradise, and to accomplish this, all the adults will be exterminated.
